Originally published as a pamphlet in 1853, and expanded to book length in 1858, The Two Babylons seeks to demonstrate a connection between the ancient Babylonian mystery religions and practices of the Roman Catholic Church. Often controversial, yet always engaging, The Two Babylons comes from an era when disciplines such as archeology and anthropology were in their infancy, and represents an early attempt to synthesize many of the findings of these areas and Biblical truth.

This book is killer. This is part of our library. He was 98% dead on, just up to the reader to apply to all of Christendom's religions.

The "description" is sheer nonsense. Seminal Book!
This book has nothing to do with "archaeology" etc as far as it's thesis proved. Hislop methodically uses the ancient Chaldean LANGUAGE and an abundance of Greek/Roman/Egyptian and other authors to prove the obvious: Catholicism is just disguised Chaldean/Egyptian/Greek mystery religions by those that were in a dying Roman Empire trying to hold onto power in any way possible so they created the facade at the Nicene Council in 327 AD called Catholicism. The amount of startling work with the Chaldean original language as related to so many words in other important languages makes this book worth buying physically by itself. If you want a very fascinating and revealing analysis of both Bible history and Chaldean/Egyptian Mystery history this is a must have! Fascinating and exquisitely executed.
